The #1 way I saved major money when it came to my maternity wardrobe was by becoming a remixing master. (What is remixing? Mixing and matching your clothes to create the maximum amount of unique outfit combinations!) I thought I was pretty decent before pregnancy, but working with a very limited wardrobe honed my skills. (Unsure of where to even start with your maternity wardrobe? Make sure you visit Part 1 to assess your closet, Part 2 to create a shopping list, and Part 3 for shopping tips!)
By sticking with remixable pieces like basic prints and solids, mixing and matching between options should be a breeze. But part of getting dressed is all about personal style, right? Put your own spin on looks with these tips:
Don’t forget to utilize your completer pieces!
Remember that a lot of these can be non-maternity! Jackets, vests, or cardigans don’t have to close or zip to be worn! Don’t have many (or any of these) in your non-maternity wardrobe? They’ll be worth the investment for pregnancy and beyond. Pick up one or two and get to remixing!
- Denim jackets (blue, white, or other colors!)
- Blazers (printed or solid)
- Cargo/military style jackets
- Sweater jackets
- Denim vests
- Leather/vegan leather vests
- Suit style vests
- Cargo/military vests
- Button downs (like chambray!) that can be worn open
Changing accessories can change a look (and they always fit!)
Minor changes can really make a big impact! Think of bold necklaces, belts, or simply switching up your shoes. A flat, wedge, or bootie can make a big difference in the appearance or style of your outfit!
When all else fails, look for new inspiration
I get stuck just like everyone else, but blogs and Pinterest are great sources for inspiration. You can revisit my maternity style posts at any time or take a look at my Mix it Monday series, which only features outfits with remixed pieces!
To get you started, here are a few examples!
The same exact tank dress, but completer pieces and accessories change the entire look:
Unsure of how you much wear you’d get out of a completer piece like a cargo vest? They’re so versatile for pregnancy and beyond!
